OLW Necklace and Product Review

For 2013, I selected "paramount" as my One Little Word on which to focus. To give me a tangible reminder of the word, I decided to order a necklace from Lisa Leonard.  She has designed a special OLW necklace each year for the last few years.  I loved the one I bought for "health" (this style) two years ago. While the design for this year is very cute, it turns out that "paramount" is too long it!  So, I dove into her site and found the design above, which allowed my long word and also allowed me to add four heart strings (one for each  member of my family).
I really love the uniqueness of my necklace and  how it captures what is paramount to me. This necklace is pewter and larger than some of the other necklaces, so it has a more informal feel. I won't wear it everyday (like I did with the health necklace, which was much more delicate), but I love having it.  I also want to mention how wonderful the customer service is with Lisa Leonard. When I ordered my necklace, there was an offer for a % discount if I signed up for the newsletter. I signed up for the newletter but didn't get the discount. I added a note to my order asking why the discount wasn't applied. I got an email very quickly correcting my total!  The necklace arrived in cute packaging and included a complimentary desk calendar designed by Lisa. So, count me as a happy customer.  Has anyone else bought a OLW necklace from Lisa Leonard or any other company? If so, please share you experience.

I've thought about getting one for ages but I'm not a necklace wearer as a rule - this one looks really lovely!

This is a lovely meaningful piece of jewellery, especially with the addition of the four heart strings x

This is a beautiful necklace and a great idea to keep reminding you of your word. I was thinking of making my word into a bracelet using alphabet beads. Not as elegant but a lot cheaper until I can afford such a beautiful peace. I love the hearts representing your family. x

This is beautiful, Rinda, and so meaningful. I think it's the nicest OLW necklace I've seen anywhere. I've ordered from Lisa a couple of times. I also got her cute calendar at Christmas when I gift I ordered arrived. I have one of her necklaces with two charms (each with one of my kids' names) and a pearl. I just love it.

Oh that is nice - I chose a bead for my word this year and wish I'd done that for the other years. Could go back and buy them now but that doesn't seem as meaningful. I wear my bracelet almost every day so I can see my bead and be reminded of my decisions and goals for the year.

Glad you got the bracelet and that is good customer service too.
